How do you setup Nintex Mobile to work externally when your internet connection goes through a firewall. We have published our intranet out to the internet but when we go to that page our firewall prompts us for our username and password. By entering the credentials into the Nintex Mobile application does this pass the details onto the firewall security as well? I have tried searching community site for setup / security details but haven't had any luck.
Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Using Mobile, you will want to have users log into the site directly. So if a user is remote, and they try to access the url, if they are prompted by the Firewall before IIS/sharepoint, then this will be an issue. Maybe a proxy will be required in that scenario if it is in a DMZ, or allow the firewall to pass the user to the server.
Stephen, do you know if you have enabled Nintex Live? If you have, you may be able to authenticate using Microsoft federation. Easy to test:
Thanks Chris, that did work. But to allow our employees to do this we don't really want to have to set them up with Microsoft accounts as well. Is there any information about setting this up without a VPN but allowing access via a firewall?
Nintex Mobile currently supports the following methods for communicating to the corporate SharePoint farm, using corporate credentials.
Hi there, I have a few more questions on accessing live forms. When I publish a form to live, the link it gives me directs me to a sign on screen with only personal account login options. Where's the office 365 link in this list of options?
Is there a setting on our side were we have to specify that this is for business use as well to make the office 365 option appear?
The mobile app gives us the 365 option, just not seeing it when accessing via desktop.
Good question Kassie, but the Live forms will be for a different use per say. Wouldn't you want your internal users to access the form directly? The Live forms gives non employee auth access to forms published outside your network, and also Anonymous options.
But you could potentially use Live to authenticate to Nintex Mobile via a Microsoft account
